    35 Whelen loading questions.

    I’ve had a couple of nuances or growing pains with the Whelen. Maybe it’s just me or my setup. First the rifle is a Ruger M77 with a Shilen 1:14 SS super premium match grade barrel and a match grade chamber. It’s accurate and seems to shoot all loads well so far. Every change of RL 15 with 250...

    25-06 or 6.5 Creedmoor

    Not looking to start an argument or pissing match by any means and doubt you guys will resort to one because this isn’t the campfire. For starters this is a down the road a bit as far as coming to fruition. Lord knows my Whelen barrel took nine months to get done. I’m going to get a Remington...

    Thoughts on a cheap truck gun

    I’m kicking around the idea of picking up a cheap 6.5 Creedmoor. I’m thinking of either a Ruger American or Savage something or another. I want an accurate,durabl, no frills 6.5 Creedmoor. Michigan allows a.269” bore or smaller centerfire for night time predator hunting and I have good luck...

    RL26 in the 270???

    I’m sure it’s been covered, beaten to death and the proverbial dead horse kicked. So, my apologies ahead of time. I’m getting fine results with RL22 right now with accuracy. However, in attempt to scale down, I’m wondering what you guys are getting accuracy and velocity-wise with RL26 in the...

    Refinishing a Rem 700 BDzl wood stock?

    Figured this was the best place to post this. I’m delving into refinishing the wood stock on my Remington 700 BDL It’s a 1980 vintage 270 that I got from my uncle and it’s getting that orange red hue to it. I’m going the rubbed linseed route. I’ve watched a ton of videos about it and it...

    Quick Load?

    Thinking of getting Quick Load and was wondering what you guys think of it that have it. I have bummed data from friends (M1Garand) for some time and figured it’s high time to stop being a mooch. It seems like you get more honest data that isn’t watered down so much. I happen to love...

    35 Whelen project about to kick off......finally

    I finally have what I need to start my 35 Whelen project. I’ve off loaded a couple rifles (savage axis 6.5 Creed and Ruger carbine 243) to make room and get me some cash. It will be built on a Ruger M77 Hawkeye SS action. The action has been already smoothed out and trigger has been cleaned up...

    Favorite.243 load for deer hunting?

    This has been discussed before I am sure. I’m just getting to the 243 game so this is why I’m asking. I never had been drawn to the 243 for whatever reason but I recently inherited my dads Ruger M-77 Carbine SS in 243. It’s accurate and being so compact is a very handy package for still hunting...

    Thoughts on the PRC cartridges.

    I’m a huge fan of smart case design. I love the Creedmoor and truly appreciate the thought put into it. Completely understand that downrange numbers are basically the same as the 260 Remington but, the form and function of the Creedmoor kills the 260 Remington from COAL to twist. Flame away...

    Best 6.5 Creedmoor AR rifle

    So, one more I’m doing research on. I’ve had a couple of AR 15 platform rifles before and I just can’t get terribly excited about them. I have carried a M4 before they were designated M4’s so I’m very familiar with the platform. I’m thinking that after I get the bolt guns I truly want in place...

    Favorite goofing off bullet for the 6.5 Creedmoor

    I’ve been with Creed now for a year and yes I’m a fan. Not crazy like where I’ve sold everything else but it is very fun to shoot. Accurate, minimal recoil and, Michigan allows hunting coyotes at night with a center fire rifle.269” or less. I’ve loaded/shot 143’s,140’s and 129’s all in hunting...

    Thoughts on the current Winchester M70 featherweight.

    I’ve always wanted but never had. About the time I was in my full swing gun buying years Winchester rifles were of sub par quality and were far behind Remington and others. I’m seeing some good things said about the current M70 and it’s a CRF that supposed to be pretty smooth. I’m itching for...

    Which one, or another option

    I’m settled on three calibers for my permanent stable. A 6.5 Creedmoor T3 superlite SS (on it’s way and replacing my Savage 6.5) This will be my primary deer hunting rifle and will handle my lighter duties as Michigan allows .269” and smaller for night hunting coyotes. I’m having an ‘81...

    Kimber TLE 10 mm question

    Just looking to see who has one and your experience with the pistol. I’m looking into a 1911 style 10 mm for a retirement gift for myself. I have just over three years to go to figure it out. My reasons for a 1911 10mm are simple. I like the way a 1911 packs. Even in a full size...
